The Spirit of the Border is a gripping tale of violence and adventure in the early days of the United States. Renegades are attacking the people of the Ohio frontier, including a village of missionaries and their converts. These outlaws have no fear of anyone, but they will learn to fear Lewis Wetzel. A one-man militia, he has vowed to rid the border of predators but can he prevent the situation from becoming an all-out war? Zane Grey is best known for his westerns, but he is also the author of several historical novels. Set in the 1770s, The Spirit of the Border is based on real events and people, including some of Grey s own ancestors.
